Heavy Wind and Rain on the Way
It won't be snow, but there will be plenty of heavy wind and rain coming our way Friday and then everything will freeze on Saturday!
First the wind
With gusts up to 70 miles a hour expected Friday, there is an extremely high probability of power outages. It's important that you take precautions now, making sure you have batteries for flashlights, keep your electronic devices charged etc. With the high likelihood of power outages, some stores may be closed Friday into Saturday, so it would be a good idea to finish your grocery shopping for the weekend and any Christmas shopping as soon as possible.
Then there's the rain
As you can see, the Bangor area and Downeast Maine is expecting 1.5 to 2 inches of rain. When you combine that rain with the frozen ground and snow that will all melt, that leads to a very strong possibility of flooding.
Saturday temperatures will fall into the 20's after being around 50 on Friday. Any water on roadways, driveways, sidewalks etc. will freeze so be careful driving and walking!
